    Fedex is picking them up tomorrow seller is doing an insurance claim, said he would give me full refund when they are picked up. i just hate to see nice things get damaged, he is blaming fedex but he is the one that packed it like that ,idiot. Yes i hate peanuts too ive had a couple of receivers get damaged because they were single boxed with peanuts, the scariest was my model 19 it was packed well and not with peanuts but it was in the wood case and the seller didnt have the mounting screws attached, there is a couple of inches around the receiver with that case and it was bouncing around inside, luckily it only broke off the front molding of the case which i glued back on. the receiver could easily of been trashed

    SR8002 I got on the big auction site for a mere fraction of its original MSRP and is in practically new condition.

    Not a vintage piece, but it's the heart of my living room 5.1 home theater setup and sounds wonderful...

    That's so disappointing. I know the feeling. I had the same problem with my JBL L80t3s, same crappy packing job. I patched up the corners and still have them.

    I just received this yesterday and it works really well out of the box. It needs a cleaning and alignment but it is working and sounding good as is.

    I just got my 2275 back a week or so ago from Glenn McDonald (aka: EchoWars) and it's now completely restored. It wasn't without it's hurdles, as it had to make a special trip up north to Mike Williams in Flint, MI to get the tuner straightened out, as in its earlier days it suffered from the dreaded "cat urination" on top of it. Originally it was thought to have missed anything important, but apparently over time it started to corrode the IF board and pretty much ruined the tuner on it. It's all fine and and dandy now though and this thing is so beautiful (both sight and sound!). It'd been a long time goal of mine to get it completely restored, as it was my fathers originally and it was passed on to me. Letting him see the finished product has been pretty cool, to say the least. That and I got a replica WC-22 case for it, as he always regretted no getting one originally. Anyway, it's my only Marantz piece...but hopefully someday I can fill out the rest of my living room system to match it.

    Marantz 1060 with original wood case.
    Marantz 104 Tuner with home made wood case.
    Marantz 2100 Tuner.
    Does a Superscope count as a Marantz? If so I have a Superscope R-1270.
    Cheers Rob

    Here's my 2252b with my miracord 46 on top. Industrial design at its finest. I need to get a light replaced, but she sounds sweet.
